There are jam bands, zydeco stompers, fiddle virtuosos, rockabilly road dogs, alt-twang outfits, NOLA blues fiends, high-flying brass bands, soul superheroes, Cajun string bands and a little outfit called Ganstagrass. The Rhythm & Roots Festival doesn’t mess around. It grabs a big bite of its signature sounds and drops it off on the doorsteps of its ever-growing and always-animated audience.
As usual, there’s a wealth of performers slated for this year’s bash, so if you’re heading to Ninigret Park this weekend, here are five artists to catch. Whether you’re dancing or watching, they’ll definitely tickle you. The Duhks (above) are the host band. You’ll be seeing ’em everywhere. Here are five to def catch on Sunday.
